Micro-credentials supporting flexible higher education and lifelong learning

The present policy input comprises EUA’s key messages for the European Commission’s public consultation on micro-credentials in the summer of 2021. The results of the consultation will feed into the Commission’s proposal for a Council Recommendation on micro-credentials for lifelong learning and employability.


EUA, acting on behalf of its members, has taken part in various initiatives related to micro-credentials. These include the discussions leading to the 2020 Bologna Process Rome Ministerial Communiqué, which mentions micro-credentials, the MICROBOL project and the European Commission’s consultation group that issued a report in December 2020 on the European approach to micro-credentials.
